Excellent recipe! I used natural peanut butter since that's what I had at home, and added an extra half teaspoon each of the vanilla and almond extracts to compensate for the reduced sweetness. Also I only had a 1/2 cup of brown sugar at home so I upped the white sugar to a cup and a half instead of a cup. The one warning I would offer is if you are making these cookies for company, pay attention to the directions about how far apart to spread the cookies and make sure you shape them into a ball, otherwise they will run into each other and you won't see the criss cross design as well. My later batches were much more attractive than the first one when I put the balls too close together and didn't fully shape the balls of dough. If they are just for you and your family, though, it doesn't really matter, you will love these cookies no matter what they look like!
